In Honolulu, we are a melting pot of cuisines from around the Asia-Pacific region. From fresh fish to locally grown fruits, Hawaii has a variety of culinary delights not easily available anywhere else. However, without healthy teeth, will you be able to enjoy them? Missing teeth may feel like an inconvenience to many people, but they are more detrimental than that. The loss of each tooth increases the biting force on the remaining teeth, much more than they were designed to withstand. This ultimately decreases the lifespan of those teeth through gum disease or wear leading to their loss as well. The domino effect of losing tooth after tooth not only increases the forces on the remaining teeth but also magnifies it as well. Dental implants are the perfect solution to replace missing teeth since they are just as strong as your original teeth, but allows you to chew just as easily. Dr. Malcolm Choy has trained under the most highly recognized implant surgeons in the world and is located at Manoa Dental in Honolulu, Hawaii. Call for a consult and see what are your best options.
